Any landing you can walk away from............  ;D

That could have done with a few more aerials scabbed onto ir, I'm sure I saw a small space just forward of the fin.......
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

First: wicked 'mouth! This plane is so cool!

Second:    man.. had to have been one hell of a crosswind on that! A shame about the camera angle, a lot of the pertinent visual info was obscured. At one point the wing appeared to dip substantially but.. we can't see the area in entirety. The compression due to the 'zoom' of the camera makes some of the landing look more severe than it actually is, but the moment it appeared to bank and the wing dipped would have been nice to see without the ground in the way.

But after a great one you can use the aeroplane again straight away :mellow:

The shark mouth had definite Typhoon/A-7D vibes about it.

I've actually seen one of those in that exact markings here in Aus, it was under restoration at an airport I was working at, they were aiming at it being airworthy and had it to a point where it could taxi before I left that airport but I don't think they got it flying because as far as I'm aware there are no or has been no flying Hunter's in Australia, and when I seen it was back in 2001 or 02...  :-\
